I give up. I've now spent almost two entire days chasing down sodding Borgia couriers and according to my tally chart I've tackled or killed 63 of the sods... and still no Aconite. So I've had enough, I'm just going to have to accept that this is the first AC game that I'm not going to sync 100%. Whoever's idea it was to only have aconite on Borgia couriers and then for it to be so random needs to be beaten with the stupid stick Ubisoft!!! lol. I want photographic evidence that they've be beaten with the stupid stick as well. I've tried the S4M6 thing but out of 12 attempts only got the courier twice. Here's an idea for some DLC Ubisoft make a mission where you have to kill 100 Borgia couriers, put them everywhere and make sure we get some Aconite, you'll sell loads.

You can also send your assassins on a mission where aconite is a reward

Thanks for the suggestions guys but bandits won't help me as they 100% don't have aconite and neither will the Assassin missions because none of them have Aconite as the reward. The only way to get Aconite is to catch a Borgia Courier, I counted 63 definite from when I started counting and still got none. Utterly rubbish. Ubisoft need to patch the game to make Borgia couriers more frequent and more likely to carry Aconite, and bring back the bloody map markers from AC2 so you can chase them down. Its so frustrating and stupid. Really, really dumb.

I've killed and tackled them. Doesn't seem to make a blind bit of difference, I've got loads of Quicksilver, Elephant Ivory and Indian diamonds though!!! Anyone want to trade me for a piece of Aconite. lol. Most frustrating thing in a game for years and totally not skill related. Random nonsense, I hate it.

I must have got very lucky on the aconite, I restarted my save because I had sold one of my shrunken heads not knowing it's worth. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

And yesterday at the start of sequnce 5 I came out of the hideout after an induction ceremony and there was a courier right outside. He wasn't running either just standing there looking at me with a very puzzled look on his face.

So I tackled him quickly before he got going (I hate chasing these guys and pickpockets usually kill them)and sure enough as soon as he hit the ground I saw the +1 Aconite pop up.

I wish ya luck in finding it, maybe you'll find the "dumb" courier like I did and he will just let you "have" it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

lol. I can but hope!!! You lucky swine. The funny thing is when I set out the aim was to try and work out the frequency of aconite on couriers to let other people know who are having similar problems to me. I thought at worst it'd be 1 in 10, but no it seems to be totally random. My other half has started playing it and to really rub salt into the wound she tackled her first sodding Borgia courier on the way to Nero's temple or whatever the missions called... ping +1 Aconite, I could have died with laughter!!! I didn't though... I nearly topped myself. lol. No really.

I have almost 20 of each item (the ones not needed for shop quests) I've tried this method and others for 2 days straight, and they never give me aconite. I have tried EVERYTHING.

The really funny thing is that I stopped hunting for aconite on my 100% play through...done everything there is to do so just hunting for aconite was giving me a headache and making me bored. What's really funny is that on a new play through, I got aconite on the very first currier I spotted while heading to the first tunnel with Machiavelli. Aint that a B*TCH!!!!
